Deadline has revealed that Edward Berger, who directed the 2022 Academy Award-winning movie All Quiet On The Western Front, is in negotiations to direct and oversee development on a new Jason Bourne movie, though there’s reportedly no script for it at this time.
The outlet noted that the movie is in early development but that once a script is done, Matt Damon — who starred as the titular character in four out of the five films in the series — would be approached to return if he so chose.
What was the most recent Jason Bourne movie?
Prior to the announcement, the most recent movie in the series was simply titled Jason Bourne and was released in theaters in 2016. The film starred Matt Damon as the titular ex-CIA agent and was directed by Paul Greengrass and written by both Greengrass and Christopher Rouse.
The movie followed Bourne as he is hunted down by CIA head of cyber-security Heather Lee and director Robert Dewey while trying to learn about his father. It received mixed critical reception but made $415.5 million on a $120 million budget.
